For this summer cookout salad you will need 1 head of cabbage or 1/2 head each of a green cabbage and a red cabbage, cider vinegar, salt, sugar, mayonnaise, prepared horseradish, baby carrots, raisins and or dried cranberries.
I start by hand shredding some cabbage. I like to mix green and red cabbage, about half a head each. Here is just a small head of green cabbage because I didn't have any red on hand.
It shreds to about 8 cups. Then add 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons of salt, and enough water to cover the cabbage. Allow to soak in the vinegar water for at least 30 minutes to an hour while you prepare the rest of the ingredients and go read a chapter of my memoir.
I like the baby carrots because I am too lazy to peel carrots; besides we always have some in the fridge because our dog, Benni, likes them as a bedtime snack.
Drain the cabbage, but do not rinse it.
Serve with your barbecued chicken, grilled hot dogs, bratwurst, or kielbasa.
